Painting and drawing were always part of Bonnie’s life as she grew up in Wisconsin on the Mississippi River. Four years of studying illustration and advertising at Art Center College of Design and a Bachelor of Arts led to work at McCann Erickson-Hakuhodo and the Koedi Studio in Japan. Returning to Santa Barbara, California, photography became a large part of her life with photo trips to mountains, deserts, forests and oceans. That led to her designing 30 large-format, landscape photography books for David Muench Photography, Inc. Recent travels to the Antarctic, Africa, Asia and India deepened her knowledge of our planet’s limited resources and she became focused on communicating the interconnected landscape of earth, air and water.
